Abstract

IT is well known that, in Asterias rubens L., nine Tiedemann's bodies are normally found. Elsewhere1 I have previously recorded the occurrence of specimens with ten of these bodies, and have shown that the absence of the tenth (the presence of which makes the arrangement quite regular) cannot be accounted for by supposing that it is suppressed in order to 'make way for' the stone canal.
